Man dies after being run over by horse-drawn wagon

Authorities said a 38-year-old Amish man has died after being run over by a horse-drawn farm wagon that broke free in southwestern Michigan. The Kalamazoo Gazette and WTVB-AM reported Daniel Yoder of St. Joseph County's Nottawa Township was driving the wagon loaded with hay Thursday night when the yoke between the horses broke, part of the trailer gave way and the wagon rolled down a hill and off the road. Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department officials said Yoder was run over after falling off the wagon or trying to jump to safety.
